brennan because they view hagel as a turncoat, but, wow, did hagel just sit there and allow himself to get flogged. >> i have already stated that i regret the terminology. i've already noted that i -- that i should have used another term. the bigger point is what i was saying, i think -- what i meant to say, should have said, it's recognizable. it's been recognized, is recognized. i should have said recognized instead of legitimate. i said it, and i don't remember the context or when i said it. well, i've said what i said. i've said many, many things over many years. that's what i should have said, and thank you. >> notice the pattern there. anyway, time and time again hagel would get hammered, beaten up by republicans, fumble, and the democratic senators would have to jump in and bail him out. the most painful example? when hagel stumbled on iran saying the obama administration supports containment and calling iran an elected legitimate government. >> i've just been handed a note that i misspoke and said i supported the president's position on containment. if i said that, i meant to say t
. we have heard that may be contentious, john brennan. steven chu announced he's stepping down. that's another opening to fill. not to mention susan rice's. at some point how much of a distraction are these fights and how much political capital do they eat up that sort of takes away from some of these policy things we're talking about? >> well, it's always a risk and it's become obviously a bigger deal in recent years and this is one of the reasons why i think rice stepped out of the running there because she didn't want to become a distraction. obviously any post that has to be filled up will eat up a little bit of your capital, but tames there are a lot of issue that is can't be ignored. the sequestration battles and unlike julian, i do kind of think that's a difference between the gun and the immigration battle in that republicans themselves really want this immigration issue off their plates, and i do think you're -- you already see in the house the talk about they're putting together a bill as well with bipartisan support that they want to kind of get this taken care of. so i th
committee will hold confirmation hearings on john brennan to be the next director of the cia. that begins at 2:30 in program 216 of the hart building. and friday, retired general mcchrystal will talk about his memoir on the afghanistan war and his removal by president obama. that is your capital rundown for the week of february 4th, 2013. you can find more at myfoxdc.com and reach us on twitter at #capital rundown. >>> before we get to tucker, we want to mention as you take a live look at the roads with the snow coming down, we are now getting lots of reports of fender-benders, particularly in montgomery county. allow extra time. it's fresh snow. not a lot, but has fallen and there are problems out there. >> most importantly, temperatures have fallen back into the 20s. anything that's partly melted can refreeze quick and can cause more issues. >> yuck. >> yeah. >> snow coming down has cooled the atmosphere. >> yeah, cooled it big time. the good news, if you need to be out on the roadways. most of the snow is out of here. reduced, very light snow bands and a couple of flurries left over. w
be worthwhile, if you are confirmed, to meet with mr. brennan to talk about coordination between the two agencies so do not end up with similar if not identical functions in different regions of the world with different command structures, rules of engagement, etc. -- counter- terrorism covers the gap or the relationship between traditional defense and the intelligence committee. -- community. >> that is an area that is becoming more relevant and complicated. title and reverses title 50. -- title n versus title 50. >> final thought -- but not think we can adequately assess the size and importance of the cyber threat. that may well be the war of the future. my sense is that we are not -- we are all talking about it, but i am not sure we have a sense of urgency. and the secretary panetta has increased our proposed increase of that capacity. people can die, and their society could be brought to a standstill without our rocket ever taking off or are planned and treating our airspace. i hope that will be a point of emphasis, because i think that maybe the next war. >> i agree. as you know, i
, we would all be paying attention to mr. brennan who is the nominee to be director of central intelligence and who has himself a history of some controversy on both the heft and the right ironically. so if we could just talk about what the implications of this are, and i'm going to try and put these two questions together, actually, and to digress and explain this question a little better, many of us who work in foreign policy studied history because that's what draws you in. and in the old days polysci and ir were fields that weren't exactly embraced as they are now, and for those of us who did study history, a hot remember that all these inconsequential and rather interesting countries whether it was the czechoslovakias or malis of the time were the precursors to larger battles that could have been dealt with had they been dealt with early. i wonder if just sort of thinking through that prism where we see things going, but maybe take the nominees, and i'm going to just throw it open and see who grabs the mic first. tom. >> okay. you're putting it in front of my face, you kne
